“As soon as I hung up the phone after talking with Gloria, I knew that Shanti Heart was the place for me to take my yoga teacher training. Gloria is one of the most intuitive and loving people I have ever met.
I was in the weekday yoga teacher training, meeting 2 days a week for 4 hours each day. This worked out good for me and if I missed a week day session, I could make it up by attending a weekend class. We followed a curriculum of studying the 8 limbs of yoga, but Gloria was always “in tune” with the needs of the students at the moment and would follow her urgings, keeping the sessions flexible and spontaneous. This, to me, is a big key in hearing and acting on that inner voice. We spent plenty of time on teaching techniques, sequencing and how to put a yoga class together. We were critiqued on our form, taught breathing techniques, learned the health benefits of the asanas and anatomy.
Shanti Heart is in a picturesque setting. A stand alone studio on a small lake. I have grown a lot personally and feel equipped to teach and share my yoga experience with others because of my Shanti Heart training. Thank you. ”

“I completed the weekday YTT program at Shanti Heart with Gloria and what a wonderful program it is! Gloria’s energy is magnetic and she emanates love and authenticity. To me, she epitomizes a true yogi and is an amazing teacher and mentor. Her knowledge seems endless and she has a way of making abstract concepts easy to understand with her personal stories. Like another reviewer said, I knew Gloria was special from the moment I met her. Her teaching style is to honor every human where they are and she has the utmost respect and tenderness for each of her students. Shanti Heart is a beautiful place…cozy and peaceful and Gloria treats us like family. Every day of training opens new doors inside my body, mind and heart. I am learning so much and enjoying myself tremendously in the process. Above all, I am so grateful to Gloria for leading me on this path.”
